Nooooooo... I'm relying on the iPod Touch XL to motivate hackers and programmer to release another jailbreak. The new boot-rom on my 3Gs must be cracked. Hence, I can continue to live my perfect life.
iPhone - Jailbreak = Dumbphone?

Smoking and drinking(under the legal ages)
Not signaling before you turn
Sex under the age of 18(16 in some states)
These things are all illegal, yet people do them every day, and nothing can be done to stop them.
I bought /my/ iPhone with /my/ money and /I/ own it. Thus, /I/ can do whatever the **** I want to with it.

cannabis is illegal, because of some wack paper industry nonesense. special interests groups always win out. i hope it becomes illegal, then we'll be some badass underground society. and there will be jailbroken ipod dealers, imagine what a booming business that would be!

Well, at least I made myself laugh....
Did we run out of real news again?
There is a better chance there will be legislation forcing carriers to unlock phones after contract, then legislation criminalizing jailbreaking.

After your bogus and complete lack of factual data about Steam coming to Mac, it's obvious you write to generate page views Messany. This is nothing more than sensationalism at it's worse. I wish the so-called writers on this site would go back to the way it was before the 500k member push crap happened. At least we got real news and information and not this bullshi t. Messany, you are never going to be trusted on this site if you keep posting crap like this.
Ban me, I don't care.

guys sit down and read digital millennium copyright act... or any government wording at that. wording is always obscure and definition-less. supreme court judges remain in seat under "good behavior"... but there's no definition of what good behavior is. it's how the government works and it's how the dmca works.
read through the dmca and you'll see that the core basically says if you circumvent copy-write prevention systems, or change them, it's illegal. there's no definition of circumvention either or what said systems are. a bootloader is basics to just about any piece of hardware on the streets, but is it a copy-write prevention system? the obscurity of the definition allows it to be spun in the sense that it is. manufacturer places a piece of hardware out there with the intention that it will only be used there one way. they can easily say that modifying the root system grants access to installing apps or whatever in a fashion that circumvents security measures. this is why wii modding for homebrew can be argued as illegal. this is why xbox modding can be argued as illegal. this is why changing your cars engine to run off of used cooking oil from restaurant greece traps can be spun as illegal. soldering a chip into your toaster can be spun as illegal. it's why people have been scared to enter the US for discovering flaws in the intel chips, flaws only learned by "circumventing" certain systems.
the fact remains that law obscurity can screw you at any point and implementing such actions wouldn't be hard at all. making a specific "jailbreaking" law seems more unlikely.
as far as collecting data about your phone. just go read about how apple shut some people off of itunes for modification. they know. they collect "non-personal" data every time your handset plugs in. whats the definition of non-personal? if it doesn't have your name, it probably isn't personal. simple as whiting out the top of your social security card where your name sits to make the information safely attainable under law. obscurity.
now i'm no lawyer or politician. i believe in fighting the machine as much as everyone else here. i'm just being more realistic. freedom in this country sunk with the tea we through off the side of the british boats. it's an extremist view, but the kind of government illustrated in v for vendetta would not ever surprise me. however, the government is scared of the masses, there's only so much that can happen before we snap, and it's a constitutional right to rise up... not to diverge too much into full blown anarchy, as i understand that laws are needed to keep the peace, but there comes a point where the cost of peace becomes ridiculous.
not to keep yapping... the point everyone's making is that this will never happen. i agree. but don't be so confident on jailbreaking being bulletproof to law.
